Short Films Distribution: Size is Not What Matters

In the US, it is believed that the only way to showcase a Short Film is on VOD platforms. However, in this panel, we will demonstrate that there is a real market for Short Films at an international level and on diverse media outlets like Theatre, TV, Airlines and so on.
The goal will be to get the buyers’ perspective on the Short Film market, its requirements, expectations, how the buying process works and what Short Films brings them in terms of revenue and audience.
For this purpose we will have panelists from Asia (Aki ISOYAMA Japan, Buyer for diverse media outlets), Europe (Paola RUGGERI Italian TV Buyer) and North America (Andrea WHYTE from Canada, Airlines Buyer).
The moderator, Audrey CLINET has been a sales agent since 2016 in France and now in the US with her company EROIN.
